Agency I'm Enterprise announced on voice actress Kana Ueda's official blog on Friday that Ueda was hospitalized after having to leave an event on Thursday due to her poor health. The post noted that Ueda's health was already improving due to treatment, but on the advice of her doctor and other related people, she has decided that she will forego her appearance at the Fate/Grand Order U.S.A.
